Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

And then one day you find 10 years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun."

— Pink Floyd

Interestingly, we all allow the first 10 years and the second 10 years and the third 10 years of our lives to pass without a worry of getting older. It's not until our 4th set of 10 years that we take notice. Even with words of wisdom from bands as pervasive and all-reaching as Pink Floyd, we still miss the message. Some knowledge can't be passed down, it has to be experienced to be fully understood. It's precisely our 40 years of experience that allows us to take note and understand it. I think we should celebrate reaching that level of wisdom rather than fear it. Use the knowledge we've accumulated to fine-tune our path and approach living with new vigor.
